The Exodus System takes classic OSR games and adds modern innovations. This book is suitable for playing sci-fi, fantasy, and all sorts of other genres. It takes inspiration from such other systms as Savage Worlds and the Cypher System.

For Players:

-Fast Character Creation: Get a PC made in minutes

-Versatile Options: Every character is useful at something, both in and out of combat

-Create-a-Class: Choose a Party Role, a Combat Role, and two Flavors and you've got your custom class.

-Support for Creativity: Do you want your Performer who focuses on Companions to be able to summon eidolons of pure sound? Go for it!

For GMs:

-Low-Prep Gaming: Generators for everything from quests to items, dungeons, enemies and more let you come up with campaigns on the fly. All of the tables for each generator are laid out conveniently and designed to resolve with one throw of the dice.

-Compatible with OSR Modules: Pretty much any any adventure whose NPCs use HD in their stat blocks you can run using the Exodus System.

-Upcoming Support: We've got lots of material in the pipeline. New monsters, new quests, and more.

For Publishers:

-SRD Support: This game is part of a bundle that includes the game rules in a .DOCX file for easy hacking. Just add your own setting!

-Easy NPC Stat Blocks: No need to calculate that birdman's "Use Rope" skill. NPC blocks are compact and take seconds to write up.

-Genre-Free: Use this setting to support anything from giant mecha to medieval pulp and anything in between.

Is combat in the game Theatre of the Mind or grid/map-based?

Hi Jacob, sadly (Exodus_SRD_Pretty_WEB_06-15-18.pdf) is still gobbledygook on an Android Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus and (Exodus_System_Core_Book_PRINT_Smaller_File.pdf) still has no cover?

This sounds interesting. I really just need something to run B/X osr stuff.

Other than the price, what's different from the SRD version of this? Why buy one instead of the other, or both? Less important, how does the new sci-fi SRD compare?

The SRD files for these books our printer friendly. They have no art and are laid out using more generic fonts. You also get a word file that you can edit yourself for hacking at home. This book has really pretty artwork in it from a lot of talented people.

The difference between the Sci-Fi version and this one is that this one is more generic, and probably better suited for fantasy and superhero games. Some of the language in this one is also more geared towards old school RPGs. Liking this one I represent creatures by their HD, but in the Syfy version it's listed as level.

In this book, too there are lists for static difficulties as well as opposed to difficulties, and that is because I wanted to make it as Packer friendly as possible. I wanted everyone to have options for making the system their own. My preference in games is to have everything being opposed roll because it adds more attention, so in the Syfy version I did away with any references to static numbers.

Hi Jacob, Could you maybe include the cover in the smaller file that fixes the font issue? I think you forgot.

As a clarification, the SRD and the separate character sheet download fine. However, the core rule book continues to fail downloading.

Please help!

Keith, sorry, I was AFK. I usually reply to comments within 15 minutes. I'm uploading a fix that should work. It's a much smaller file. You'll get an email in probably 10 minutes notifying you. The new file has "SMALLER" in the title.

Just purchased but unable to download.

The file gets to about 90% and then fails.

This happened 5 times in a row.

All other purchases download fine.

Any help?

164 MB and 483 MB files? This could use some trimming :D

I mean my Pathfinder Core Book file (578 pages of text and pictures) has less than 47 MB.

Like a few others, I'm having a problem viewing this on my Samsung tablet. All the words in the document are gibberish. Thankfully I can view the "PRINT" file.

Another thing I would suggest (besides bookmarks) is providing either a printer-friendly version, or else adding layers so we could turn off the ink-hogging layers (such at the page borders) before printing. Thanks :)

I put bookmarks into the file. They're not showing up. I've made sure to check "enable bookmarks". I'm looking into this now. The SRD is a printer-friendly file. I need to update a bit of the content, though.

That shouldn't be right. If you already paid 6.99 for the main book, and the total price of the bundle is 6.99, you should get everything else in it for free. Are you logged into your account? The one you used to buy this book?

The amount deducted from the bundle price is the cost of the item in the bundle, not its full cost. So, as the bundle price for the main book is $6.49, that's what's knocked off the cost of the bundle.

Looks cool, and I can't wait to play this. I'm confused on one thing. Are the SRD and the core rule book supposed to be identical except the last 2 pages?
Also, I get the same blocks instead of text on my galaxy S5, but it works great on PC.
Thanks.

The SRD (once I updated it), is going to have the same text as the core book. It's for publishers or people who want to print at home. Right now it's missing a couple tables, plus the last few pages, yeah. I added the PRINT file of this book as a download. It's larger, but it uses images as the pages, which means no fonts to deal with.

When did you download the file? Also, what program are you using to view them? I have been reading about how Apple is bad with certain fonts. To counter this problem I'm going to make the Print Version of this PDF available once I compile it. That file actually uses JPEGs for the pages. You can't search or select text, but you also shouldn't have text issues.

Is this at all related to the Exodus RPG from Glutton Creeper games? If it's not, this seems like a very confusing name to put on your new game system ... because your email announcement definitely made me think that you were announcing a new version of that game.

No, sorry, this is not that. I hadn't even heard of that game before I came out with this one. This is a new version of the plaintext SRD that I put out. That version is for people to hack for their own games, and this is a nicer-looking one with layout and fantastic artwork. It is also going to be in print in a couple weeks

Exodus is also on DTRPG, and has been out for quite a while :-}
Probably a good "best practice" to search places like this for the game system name you plan to use. Not sure if Exodus is still in active development, though. But it could still cause on-going confusion... which could become a trademark issue, since they hold a trademark for it.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
